Keep Kentucky Kids Safe Billboard Campaign to Continue

Thanks to the donation of billboard space provided by Lamar Outdoor Advertising, prescription drug abuse awareness billboards are going up across the Commonwealth for a second year.

The signs feature Karen Shay and Lynn Kissick, two mothers from Morehead, Kentucky, who lost their daughters to prescription drug abuse. Shay and Kissick joined Attorney General Jack Conway when he launched the first and only statewide Prescription Drug Diversion Task Force in 2009, and they have travelled with him to schools to help educate more than 25,000 students, parents and teachers about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

The billboards note that prescription pill abuse kills more Kentuckians than motor vehicle crashes.
